COMMENTS FROM THE PASTOR:
It has been awhile since our last trip to the Billy Graham Library. I thought now might be a good time to ask if anyone would be interested in another visit. If you would like to go to the Library, let me know, and if we have enough interest we will set a time in the near future and go. We will see the place where Bro. Billy and his wife have been laid to rest and we will enjoy the wonderful tour through this Christ honoring facility. I look forward to this special time of fellowship with you.
Sheila Capps and Ben Wheeler will be coming together in holy wedlock on May 5th. They both are members of our church. I hope you will be praying for this couple as they begin a new life together in Christ. The church is invited to this time of celebration.
Vacation Bible School is coming up the last of June. Would you pray for this ministry and ask The Lord what He might have you to do. VBS is one of the greatest evangelistic ministries the church has and we need to reach out to these children and lead them to a saving relationship with The Lord Jesus Christ.
Acts 19:17b, “And the name of the LORD Jesus was magnified.”
What is your opinion of Jesus, who is He? Do you see Jesus as a teacher, or do you see Jesus as an example or do you see Jesus as a healer? The Sons of Sceva saw the power that Paul had while preaching in the Name of Jesus and thought that the Name of Jesus could give them supernatural power. Something like a lucky charm that really works. These men were trying to perform an exorcism when they thought that they could pull out their point of power and command that the demons leave this man in the Name of Jesus. What a big mistake. The man who was possessed turned and looked at them and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?” After saying this he preceded to whip the devil out of them. Are you being whipped by the devil? Do you feel defeated? Why don’t you try surrendering to The Lord Jesus and let Him fight for you? The Lord Jesus is not something to be used at our pleasure, He is someone who is the Almighty and can give victory to us in any situation. He is The Lord! All the redeemed should Magnify His Name! When we are empowered by Him, His Name is magnified through us and if God be for us, who can be against us?
Philippians 2:10-11, “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
In Christ, Ricky
